Summary: I usually don't write reviews but this product deserves it. I am very sceptical about reviews but decided to take the plunge and bought two of these, one for me and one as a present. I already own a Bose dock so I know good sound when I hear it. The unit looks great in high gloss black and is slightly curved giving a clean modern look. It feels like a quality made product and has a very easy to use micro remote: play, skip track, increase/decrease volume etc.
Summary: With 500 plus reviews nearly all positive here is a short review to try and answer some doubts and questions. I am using a 3rd generation 32GB Itouch, as well as a 2nd gen Nano I can confirm there are no charging issues with either unit and both fit perfectly. The Nano uses the supplied adaptor which just slots in and out without any effort or strain.
Summary: After I saw the very high reviews in Amazon web site I could not resist the feeling to buy this as a dock for my newly bought iphone 3G. Thats where it went wrong as it is not fully compatible with iphone 3G (but it is my fault that I did not check properly about the compatibility). It can play music from iphone 3G but does not charge that so I have to charge it seperately.
Summary: Klipsch iGroove iPod Speaker System Black Have just bought this item from Amazon at just under £70. I have an 8GB, 4th generation ipod nano, which was a gift. Im not that technical but using the adaptor cradle provided, I had no trouble inserting the ipod and it played straight away.It sounds fab - very rich and if you need it, easily powerful enough for a large room at home.
Summary: Having spent ages deciding on a speaker system for my Ipod I settled for the Klipsch mainly on other recommendations. I am glad I did. The sound quality from the Klipsch is unbelievable. I listened to the Bose system in a large electrical store on my Ipod and there is no difference in sound quality. The only difference is the Klipsch is half the price. The build quality is superb. I like the 4 pin DIN connector as it is really solid and secure.
Summary: I have, within the last week, become the owner of both an ipod touch (check my review on that if you want) and this speaker system. Before I go any further, I need to make it clear that this is not a Bose (or any other make) bashing excercise. My first exposure to the Bose Sound Dock was in a 5 star hotel in Dublin that has them in every room along with an ipod (or you can bring your own ipod and dock it) - nice touch I thought.
Summary: I have been a music/hi-fi fan from as soon as I could afford to buy music and decent kit. My current system is a Quad/Naim/Mission combo that really rocks. I purchased the Klipsch iGroove speaker system in order to have a portable system to move easily from room to room that is also compatible with iPod Nano 3G.

Summary: I purchased the HG in January to use with my 80gb Classic and like all other reviews recently I can't fault the quality of this product. The sound is pretty incredible for such a small unit and at such a price it's unbelievable. I have an extremely eclectric taste in music ranging from classical, rock all the way to modern EMO and with a bit of a play around on the iPod's equaliser the sounds match the music type perfectly.
Summary: Agree with all the other positive reviews already written. Excellent, clear sound with good bass response, little or no distortion. Built solidly, no issues at all. A few comments to add: > Remote is basic, only controls previous / next track, pause, play, and volume. Does not have a wide signal reception angle range (IFKWIM), pretty much have to be straight in front of the unit and dead-on pointed at infrared receiver on unit to pick up remote's signal.
Summary: I bought this system on the strength of the incredible reviews. It really is fantastic. A lovely balanced and rounded sound. My new Ipod Nano fits perfectly and there is enough power to fill a normal sized room. I am so glad I did not spend the extra money on a Bose.
